for my vote in '08. >> the energy that's building among the democratic base and among those independents who supported the president four years ago, that's happening again right now. >> and so you get a sense that both sides feel confident. it's really hard to tell, chuck, which way it will go because as we went block by block, we saw u a lot of energy on both sides, so it's about repeating for democrats. about trying to get back to tradition for republicans. chuck? >> we're going to do this one county at a time if we're lucky. there are not that many swing counties in the battleground states. thank you very much. >>> the world bank has cut its outlook for china. becky quick is here. i imagine fear of china in slow growth will spook the markets today? >> that's what's happening, chuck. we've been watching this morning. we've been coming in near five-year highs. this among, it's a little bit of a different picture. looks like we're opening down by 50 points or so with the dow. the big concern is what's happening with growth around the globe. the world bank cut its growth forecast for chin
frustration when he referred to barack obama as that one. let's listen. >> it was an energy bill on the floor of the senate loaded down with goodies, billions for the oil companies and it was sponsored by bush and cheney. you know who voted for it? that one. you know who voted against it? me. >> any way, what will be the clues to oh tell us in realtime who is winning? we'll go to a columnist for the washington post and mark halperin. i want be to start with dana. i love your attitude. any way, what's your first way of looking at this? how do you know who is winning? >> well, i'm watching it in the filing center. i'm going to do a grown and laugh index. if you're growning when the guy is talking, he's losing. if you're laughing, that's better. you can do that for yourself at home. if you're cringing, the guy is not winning. romney has set this up in terms of zingers. >> why does it get out that he couldn't sleep last night? everything seems to leak out of this campaign. is he landing the zingers or do they boomerang next to him? ultimately, is he able to land a serious blow. if we're debating
and to dump 40 million people to wait in the energy ro emergency room. let's look at the some of the latest polling in the wake of wednesday's debate. this afternoon pew released a poll that showed a dramatic shift toward romney. this poll covers the four days sibts the debate and it has romney pulling even with president obama among registered voters, 46% even. four weeks ago pew had obama up by nine among registered voters, so this has been a huge shift in the pew poll. the move in the pew poll towards romney is greater among likely voters. romney is surging ahead to 49%. four weeks ago obama led among likely voters by eight. now to the latest gallup tracking poll which covers the last seven days. gallup has president obama back in the lead at 50 to 45. what a difference from the other polyp that's exactly where the race stood before the debate. romney had surged in the tracking poll. the two candidates were actually tied in the three days immediately after the debate, but the president seems to have wiped out romney's gains in the gallup poll. joining me right now are howard fineman, edi
; was to do that level of sanctions would create an energy crisis at that time because there was enough other oil. >> no, andrea, come on. >> let me finish the question. i was reporting this in realtime. >> okay. fair enough. >> what about the multilateral sanctions this administration achieved with the help of getting russia and china on board which the bush administration was never able to achieve because there was no understanding or no agreement from the u.n. that diplomacy was given some time to work. >> it's great we got multilateral sanctions through the u.n. security council. unfortunately the price we paid for getting china and russia to buy into the sanctions was that the central bank sanctions would not be included. everyone agrees across the political divide in the united states who follow the issue closely that the central bank sanctions are the ones that had the real bite. the administration resisted efforts in congress repeatedly to get sanctions in place. you can cite, as they often do the economic implications. it's not clear to me why there were economic implications in 2009
prices, on debt management, on energy and compare that to the vision and the ideas for the future that mitt romney has. it's very important. the last couple weeks there's been a little bit of a movement for the president. but listen, speeches don't create jobs. rhetoric doesn't create jobs. good ideas do. and the president, despite his efforts, has failed to help the american people get back to work and i think mitt romney has better ideas. that's what this debate will be about. >> business crill crystal and o republicans have questioned whether mitt romney has been specific about his ideas. here's paul ryan on fox news sunday. >> lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> but i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the time -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. let me say it this way, you can lower tax rates by 20% across the board, by closing loopholes and still have preferences for the middle class for things like charitable deductions for home purchases, for health care. >> where is the math? and is mitt rom
talks about, jobs and the economy, health care, education, energy, and tax reform. those are the president's themes. he's never walked away from any of those issues, and it's easier, i think quite frankly, for mitt romney to have multiple positions on the same issue because he has no plans. he has no ideas. he has no proposals. he's not ready for prime time. >> okay. we've got a month to go. please spread the word among the surrogates you mentioned we are welcoming them here on "hardball," not to be afraid of me. i can be dealt with. i'm not the worst guy in the world. i will hit them on the points but they'll have a welcome wagon here if they want to come on and make the points. you're very good at it. howard, jack welch was here friday, he did all right. >> i would say it doesn't feel -- i get what the mayor is saying, but it doesn't quite feel like the chorus you're talking about for some reason. speaking of surrogates, what about the entertainment people? they love barack obama. get out of l.a. and get on the road. >> go to your hometown and tell people what you think
on women? >> it was a very low energy debate. there weren't a lot of zingers or agrow or flash points. if you were watching that for the first time coming into the political landscape cold, you would wonder whirks haven't the guys come together with a bipartisan fiscal deal over the last couple of years? you didn't get that sense of intense anger and emotion on stage last night. yes, they are different in the issues, but you really could feel these are two professorial people with many views could have been pretty boring to watch. and there was not the passion. >> i want to bring in congressman steve israel, democrat from new york, also the chair of the democratic national campaign committee. i'm sure you listened to the post-debate last night. no 47%, no bain, there are for many democrats big supporters of the president's missed opportunities, what do you think of the debate last night? >> i might buy a used car from mitt romney but i'm not going to buy the used policies he's advocating that got us into the great recession. >> what was that line last night? >> there were two moments

the weekend we asked him about his preparations for this debate on thursday and what kind of energy he expects the vice president to bring. this is what he had to say. >> well, i guess we don't have the sound, which makes for a funny joke, here's what he had to say, quiet. he said something, ron. can you tell us what he said? >> reporter: basically he expects vice president biden come out like a cannonball and maybe perhaps in reaction to the president's performance at the debate last wednesday. so paul ryan has acknowledged that joe biden has far more experience assist a debate than he does. joe biden has been in public life for 40 years. paul ryan is not a newcomer by any stretch of the imagination. he has seven terms in the u.s. house under his belt. i think his posture over the weekend, he went to a pumpkin patch with his family. he's trying to stay focused but trying to relaxed. one of the things etsd is his key for him is to be himself. he knows what to believe, and he needs to articulate that to the american people in the debate in kentucky on thursday. >> thank you, ron. we greatly app

the president. how did governor romney do it. past the energy and theatrics we talked about today. ezra kline writes in the "washington post" today, quote, for the most part this is romney's strategy being purposefully vague about the nature of his policies paid off. here's an example. >> governor romney's central economic plan calls for a $5 trillion tax cut. >> virtually everything he said about my tax plan is inaccurate. >> for 18 months he's running on this tax plan, and now, five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big, bold idea is never mind. >> let me repeat what i said. i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. >> joining me now is ezra kline, who is an msnbc policy analyst. ezra, thank you for your time. >> good afternoon. >> let's talk about the headline there, the vagueness here. if that is the reason mitt romney won, is that further proof that the president did not step up with the challenge that was needed to assert himself regarding this vagueness? >> i don't think there's any doubt that president obama underperformed last night, but mitt romney kind of trapped him
brothers and deepen ties with the united states on trade, energy and security. but in all of these places just as in the middle east the question is asked, where does america stand. i know many americans are asking, why us? i know many americans are asking whether our country today with our ailing economy and massive debt and after 11 years of war is still capable of leading. i believe that if america doesn't lead others will. others who don't share our interests and our values and the world would grow darker for our friends and for us. america's security in the cause of freedom cannot afford four more years like the last four years. i'm running for president because i believe the leader of the free world has a duty to our citizens and to our friends everywhere to use america's great influence wise ly without false pride and also to shape events in ways that secure our interests, further our values, prevent conflict and make the world better -- not perfect, but better. our friends and allies across the globe don't want less american leadership. they want more. more of our moral support. m
